We run a mixed breed suckler herd, calving all year round so we have a constant supply of beef. The breeds we use are Aberdeen Angus, Hereford and Beef Shorthorns. The Cattle spend most of their time grazing but come in for the harsh winter months.
When the cattle are around 2 years old and weigh about half a ton, they go off to the local abattoir. The carcass then come back to our butchery, where we hang the beef for up to 4 weeks. It is then prepared by ourselves for the customer.
